Murder mysteries are interesting to hear and read. However if one had lived in the period when Jack the Ripper unleashed his terror on poor homeless prostitutes on the streets of London, interesting would have been the last word in one’s mind. Jack the Ripper has been the most infamous man in London history. He had the entire city of London on tenterhooks for the better part of three months during the last decade of the nineteenth century. The police and the administration were clueless and helpless too. The gruesome nature of the crimes would have made stomachs to churn up. They were so repulsive that one could not imagine that a man could be capable of inflicting such inhuman torture. The only plausible explanation one could give is that the man may have been insane. He must have been a clever insane in fact as he managed to hoodwink the police for the better part of three months. Maybe he was a kind insane as he supposedly took pity on the plight of the police and stopped his carnage as suddenly as he had begun.
Many films and books have been inspired by this series of crimes. However the present day generation do not seem to know much about his antics. To relive his story a virtual tour has been organized by the tourism department where people can relive the tragedy on screen. To find out more about the Ripper one should have an experience of this virtual tour and understand the helplessness of the common man at that point of time. The virtual tour has made the use of Ripper Vision which is a hand held projector with the latest graphic pictures. Guides explain each story in detail and this is one experience one should never miss on a tour of London.
